Good morning! Hope you all enjoyed your Monday. I completely forgot that this weekend is a long weekend over here in Canada. Kind of excited about that fact. Who doesn’t love holidays?! I know today doesn’t officially call for the end of the month, but I figured today would be the best day to get in my monthly favorites for the past few weeks.
Without getting into too long of an intro, let’s jump straight into July favorites.
Fresh Berries in Coconut Milk.
Since dairy is out of my diet, I needed something to replace the creamy consistency that is yogurt. My go to has been full fat coconut milk. I think I prefer it to yogurt actually. It’s so darn delicious with berries added. Not to mention super easy.
Coconut Butter and Honey.
So, I recently thought I hated honey but I decided to try it out mixed with coconut butter (can’t go wrong there), turns out it’s one of my favorite combinations and now I’m all about toast with a mix of coconut butter, honey, and cinnamon. Yum.
This drink is the epitome of Summer. Refreshing, light, colorful, and tasty. Can’t get much better than that.
Seriously, if you thought I couldn’t like blended drinks even more, well clearly you’re wrong. My enjoyment is still going strong.
Promise not to get too lengthy with beauty favorites. I have a lot more I could add, but that would probably be better suited for a completely separate post now that I think of it.
Butter Nail Polish in Teddy Girl.
The pale pink is such a classic color for the warmer temperatures, and I like that it gives a more pale color than a crazy bright pink. I love my brights, but sometimes I prefer not going too crazy with the color. This is just a nice hint.
Mary-Lou Manizer from the Balm.
Um, simply the most gorgeous highlighting powder I’ve ever come across. I had this a very long time ago, and could never find it again after I ran out.
Finally, I come across it when I was online shopping at Lulus. And I forgot how much I adore this product.
Girl About Town from Mac.
Pretty sure this is an obvious choice. I absolutely love everything about this lipstick. It’s super long wearing, not too matte, just lovely in every way.
My fitness routine hasn’t been anything crazy in the past month. Between experiencing a loss at the beginning of the month to pulling my shoulder (I don’t think I mentioned this before – it literally hurts to move my right arm in any way).
Anyways, because of that injury I’ve been pretty immobile the past couple days. I’m going a
little lot stir crazy, but at least the pain is manageable while walking – and this way I can get moving at least a little.
And I get to look at pretty flowers like this while going on walks. A nicer trade than watching TV indoors while working out. Thinking of the positives of during this injury…
This one seems completely random since Desperate Housewives has come to an end, but I have a soft spot for this show and I kind of like being able to relive one of my favorite television series of all time.
Who else watched Desperate Housewives? What’s your favorite series on TV?

Anything exciting happening in your August?
Have a beautiful day!
